BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics Program

General

Program Description

Philosophy, Politics & Economics (PPE) is an interdisciplinary program that combines study from three disciplines. The study of philosophy equips students with the ability to reason rigorously and logically, and facilitates ethical reflection. The study of politics familiarizes students with the institutions that govern society and help solve collective action problems. The study of economics prepares students to contextualize political decisions and outcomes as they are often influenced by economic events and trends.
